Thanks to Kickstarter, the book is out!


"If you've ever wondered how an origami designer thinks, or wanted more information on how to create new origami models yourself, this book is for you. In Creating Origami, J.C. Nolan brings you inside his origami design process in glorious detail, explaining his creative techniques for origami design. Nolan describes his experience of exploration, trial, error, and success, as he worked out the origami design process and documented his experiences during his growth in knowledge and expertise. The first 100 pages of the book are dedicated to his thoughts on the creative experience, strategies, tools and tricks of the trade, detailing instructions for origami bases and techniques used in the models. Included are more than 50 models that Nolan designed or was inspired by. His detailed instructions for the famous two-color Clownfish and Sea Anemone are still an amazing classic model for origami folders. Other models range in difficulty from simple to complex, represented by well-drawn diagrams, with models from famed creators Fred Rohm, Patricia Crawford, and others. After 15 years of being out of print, Creating Origami is a rare, sought-after classic, original copies of which are jealously guarded by lucky collectors who were able to obtain them upon its first release. Now, after a successful and well publicized re-launch campaign on Kickstarter.com, Creating Origami is once again available to a new generation of fans, folders, and designers. A must-have book for the technical folder or budding creator!"
